There are so many reasons why you should rent a Kia e-Niro. This Korean electric car really changed a lot of perspectives on electric vehicles and helped push them into the mainstream even further.
It takes a lot to win the WhatCar? Car of the Year Award, and the Kia e-Niro managed this feat in 2019. This set many firsts for the awards. Firstly, it was the first time a Korean car had ever won the award. Secondly, it was the very first electric car to win the award. That is how much of an impression the e-Niro made.
Different, But Familiar
One of the key reasons why so many people want to buy or rent a Kia e-Niro is because it retains a level of familiarity to it. There is also the performance, but I will get to that in due course.
Unlike the Kia electric cars that are following on from the e-Niro (with the exception of the new generation Kia Niro EV) the Kia e-Niro was not built on a bespoke electric platform. The car’s body was also used in the petrol and diesel versions of the vehicle. However, this does provide some benefits.
Running through the middle of the cabin is the raised floor where the drive shaft would normally sit. Although this means that you lose some space in the cabin, it also means that the driver is in an enclosed position. This in itself lends to the sports car feel of the vehicle. You should be under no false allusions, the Kia e-Niro is definitely intended as a sports car.
The shape of the Kia e-Niro is that of the typical GT style car that we would see on a regular basis in the 1980’s and 1990’s. This is a car designed for fun. It also performs for your enjoyment too.
Interior Stylings – Another Reason to Rent a Kia e-Niro
So we have covered the sports car feeling of the driver’s position. But what about the rest of the interior? Well, you will be happy to know that the seats are incredibly comfortable. I have driven this car on many long journeys and it has been an absolute joy to spend time with the e-Niro. Not once did I feel any aches or discomforts that I sometimes get when going out for long trips.
There is plenty of space in this electric vehicle. Whether in the cabin (for both front and rear occupants) there is a high level of comfort. The boot space as well is incredibly generous. You will find lots of space for luggage or for any shopping you wish to store. The space alone is reason enough to rent a Kia e-Niro.
As far as the technology goes, the infotainment system is absolutely brilliant. It is so easy to navigate and it is very responsive. The satellite Navigation is excellent and easy to follow. It easily beats options in many other vehicles I have driven.
Even though it is approaching three years old, we still really recommend that you should rent a Kia e-Niro. The performance of this car is absolutely brilliant. You get a really good 250 miles of real world range (which is still better than most electric vehicles being released today). There is a top speed of 104mph and you can achieve 0-60mph in a very respectable 7.8 seconds.
So you see, there are many reasons to rent a Kia e-Niro. This is a fantastic choice for so many people. Hire one today and find out for yourself.
